An ideology defined by the following equation: F = (A + B) - C. Feminism equals Avarice plus Bigotry minus Conscience. Its most recent incarnation is characterized by supremacist whining, a form of double-think that would have made Orwell retch. Men are constantly reminded by feminists that women are taking the majority of jobs, starting more businesses than men, and generally acquiring more and more wealth at the expense of men. At the same time, feminists complain continuously about women's economic "oppression," (as though men have never been oppressed by impossible child support payments or unconscionable alimoney awards), the phoney "wage-gap" and the need for greater "equalization" (i.e. further plundering of men's earnings) in the economic sphere. Thus feminism gleefully predicts that men will become utterly disempowered while blithely demanding that they continue to subsidize the process. While perpetrating this nonsense, feminism still finds time to demand any prerogatives it deems fit to invent, squabble childishly about toilet seats AND AT THE SAME TIME complain about men's reluctance to commit to marriage (which, of course, is itself condemned as a misogynistic institution whenever it is expedient to do so). These are examples of the intellectual elasticity that allows feminism to present itself as correct on any issue, regardless of the facts or the eventual outcome. This, in turn, guides us to feminism's core philosophy: "Our say-so makes it so; if our pronouncements contradict each other, you males are required to believe both but only to the extent that they run counter to your interests and in favor of our convenience. This rule is absolute until it yields an outcome we don't like. Then we will pretend - and you are required to believe - that it never existed. Oh, and you are evil and sexist if you point to any flaw in this philosophy, even after we've abandoned or changed it. But you are a patronizing bastard if you fail to give our point-of-view your full critical consideration ... just as long as you don't disagree with it ... or agree with it for the wrong reasons ... and we will from time-to-time declare what the right and wrong reasons are ... and then change them to suit ourselves."
Feminism is nothing more than the politics of convenience.

The biggest disgrace to my gender.

Feminism used to be about women getting the same rights as men, such as the right to vote and equal pay at work.
Now feminism is a movement full of women who seem to think that their ability to push a baby out of their vagina entitles them to bigger and better everything.
I am a young woman and I disagree with feminism.
It is pretty hypocritical to expect to be treated special because you are a female (such as tighter laws concerning rape or more leniancy if a woman becomes pregnant) yet they get upset when they aren't being treated exactly like a man. The feminists need to realize that women are not better than men. They are EQUAL. You don't see any laws that provide special treatment for men do you?

Example: Once I saw a feminist say that abortions should be legal AND be free. I am all for abortion rights, but demanding that it be free because your ass couldn't use the proper birth control before spreading your legs is absured.

And before you pull the rape card on me, keep in mind that if you go to the hospital after being raped, they give you medications to prevent pregnancy. I see no reason for free abortions.

Feminisim is essentially the rambling doctrine of uneducated people. This doctrine is neither cogent nor sound. Feminism often makes up statistics and etymology so that it makes men historically sound bad. Feminist doctrine is flat out wrong and any educated person who can think for him/her self will see this.
What is up with all of this feminist propoganda? Feminism really doesn't make any sense

That untenable ideology propogating the somewhat novel untruth that feminists are women.
Feminism is an ideological hiding place for creatures who appear to have been born of a union between a sasquatch and Janet Reno.

Political and cultural movement aimed at gaining equal rights & priviledges for women. This definition differs slightly, but significantly, from the standard definition: movement for equal rights between men & women. For example, the issue of shared custody would definitely refer to equal treatment for both sexes, but is not popular among feminists. Neither is the issue of boys falling behind girls in school. This is not to say that feminism is about man hating, which is a misconception that some women, as well as men, have. Women, who use equal rights rhetoric to dis men, are not really being feminists.
We can thank feminism for laws against sexual harassment in the workplace. She thinks she's a feminist because she says all men are jerks.
